A website and social media account for Eroda mysteriously appeared online drawing the attention of eagle-eyed fans who drew similarities between the stars' recent movements and the apt timing of the accounts appearing.

Eroda's website lists pubs and hiking trails as some of the fishing island’s attractions.

"The Isle has four villages: Garona being the largest and primary port as well as the island’s capital. Marmoton, Martin’s Heaven and Yuna are the other major population centres.”

Security staff for the production were tight-lipped about who the music star was throughout their time filming at the Thorntree Inn.

Staff were suspicious that it was the former One Direction singer but didn’t know for sure until the trailer for his single was released online on Monday.

A staff member at the pub told the East Lothian Courier: “We have no idea why out of everywhere they ended up coming here but at least it's putting Cockenzie and Port Seton on the map.

“The security on the day was very tight. I had to give my car registration number to someone to get into the street and then I had a security sticker put over my phone so that my camera couldn’t be used.

“Until the video comes out on Friday we don’t know if there are any more shots in Cockenzie and Port Seton so we’ll just have to wait and see.”

A spokesperson for LS Productions said: "After working with Harry Styles on his first solo video ‘Sign of the Times’ it was great to welcome him and his team back to Scotland.

"We shot the video in and around Cockenzie, Port Seton and St Abbs, with the areas providing the perfect setting for the mythical Isle of Eroda."

The music video and new song will be released in full on Friday 6 December and his new album Fine Line will be released on 13 December.
